BTN LiveBIG: Illinois students' innovative prosthetic includes a 'nice touch'

During football and basketball games, BTN LiveBIG will spotlight notable examples of research, innovation and community service from around the conference. In-Game stories will provide more background on these features, and the opportunity to view the videos again. To reach out and touch something, to feel how hard or soft, durable or fragile it is, is one of the basic ways that humans interface with the world around them. Yet, when a person loses a hand or arm, they’re stripped of that connection. “Losing the ability to feel is just devastating.” Aadeel Akhtar said. “You use it in every facet

BTN LiveBIG: Michigan rolls a different kind of car off a different kind of assembly line

Automotive visionary Henry Ford could see the future. The founder of the Ford Motor Company understood how assembly-line production of vehicles would forever change the transportation landscape. Accordingly, he helped launch the first revolution in automotive mass production more than a century ago. But what would Ford think of auto developers at the University of Michigan who are now attempting to fill the roadways on campus with cars created from 3D printers? The sound you just heard might be the late Ford rolling over in his grave. “We actually work with the Ford Motor Company, so hopefully he’s more applauding

BTN LiveBIG: Minnesota researcher receives the school's first 'bioprinter'

Inspired by their experiences in college and elsewhere, these Pathfinders are passing by the typical, well-trod career paths and blazing their own trails. We’ll explore the unconventional approaches these Big Ten alums and faculty are taking to work. Dr. Angela Panoskaltsis-Mortari, professor of pediatrics and medicine at the University of Minnesota, recently received the gift of a lifetime — a new bioprinter, one of 20 worldwide distributed by a company called BioBots. “I was just ecstatic because I had been wanting one for years,” she said. What, exactly, is a bioprinter, and why is she so excited about it? Essentially,

BTN LiveBIG: Wisconsin grads bring color to 3-D printing

A series that covers the true revolutionaries, Game Changers explores how innovators from Big Ten universities — students, faculty and alums — are inventing or reinventing their chosen fields. The 3-D printing industry has a great deal of financial, scientific and technological potential. And a group of former University of Wisconsin students are trying to tap some of that by adding a little color to the finished products. They created a company called Spectrom, which provides color add-ons for 3-D printers — an enhancement that co-founder and 2014 chemical engineering graduate Cedric Kovacs-Johnson said is wholly new. “The technology of
